Nichole first reached out to me in April to get details for a Fresh 48 session. Her first baby was due in May and she was new to all this photography stuff, and not to mention baby stuff. First time parents have their very own challenge to face, the fear of not knowing what to expect. But, I like to say that after the first one, it’s a breeze. At least that is true coming from a momma of 4 🙂 A few details later we were locked in and patiently waiting on baby’s arrival.
Welcome to Elizabeth’s Senior Session at Sahuaro Ranch in Glendale, AZ. This graduation photoshoot was by far one of my favorites to date.

As a mother of 4, I understand how difficult taking pictures of the family can be. When our kids aren’t bickering at each other, they’re normally goofing off together.

I’ve grown so much as a mother over the years. I wanted to begin sharing things I’ve learned in hopes to inspire and encourage other women.

And you shouldn’t be.. Here’s why!
Since launching my photography business in 2013, I’ve been blessed to work with a number of different families and their children. From newborn sessions, to graduation portraits, it never gets old. No matter what age I’m capturing, I love how every photo shoot is different. When I heard Krystal from Happy Owls was interested in scheduling some preschool portraits, I was definitely interested. Here are some of the ideas I used to capture her class’s pictures this fall.

I found a new passion while photographing a fresh 48 session in Surprise AZ! In this blog post, I wanted to highlight the experience and how it touched my heart throughout.

Photography doesn’t always have to be done by a professional in order to make it worthy. In fact, I truly believe that the unplanned, unedited, uninstructed, and most candid shots are the most valuable and memorable types of photos.
